One More Thing Before I Go

Since the first debate has been posted, I have added a link to the 'Great Canadian Debate' on the sidebar, for the time being.

It's lame for me to complain given that I could have provided an opinion on the best way to run the debate and didn't, but the 'Debate' site sure is a vivid reminder of why I like blogs and hate forums. Simplicity over functionality, any day, in my book.

  • While i personally LOVE forums (of the beehive software kind, not phpBB ones) way more than blogs, the problem we had was trying to get the two arguments to appear side-by-side in a blog post. We did muck about with formatting and tables and all sorts of things, but it just wouldn't work. Every time we thought we had it sorted, something else would bugger up the layout and it would look like crap. Doing them up as webpages seemed like the best option. Maybe if we'd had eons to put this whole thing together, we could have come up with something better, but i think what we have works well, all things considered.

  • Well, I appreciate you need to appeal to everyone, not just luddites like me. I'd say just have the two arguments as consecutive posts on the blog (or as two parts of the same post, to keep the comments all in one comment thread).

    It's a matter of personal taste mainly, I suspect.
